Unless you are looking at testing and reporting problems with the new debian
installer, your best be will be to download a woody install image and
boot from that.  

After you install the base system, do a dist-upgrade and you should be
ready to go.  If you just want to get back to work, this is the way to
go about it.

Good luck,
